e-Government H D N E
In March 2004, we issued the 2004 Digital 21 Strategy. A sustainable e-government
programme is one of the key features outlined in the Strategy which will propel Hong Kong forward
in this information technology age.
We place great importance on our e-government work. The reasons are three-fold. First, developing
e-government allows us to improve operational efficiency and introduce service improvements to
benefit our customers, through technology exploitation and service transformation. Second, it is
an effective way for us to drive the wider adoption of IT in the business sector and in the community.
And third, it demonstrates the Government's leadership role as an advocate and champion to
promote Hong Kong's international status as an innovative digital city.
We have come a long way in terms of our e-government implementation over the past six years.
This booklet outlines our achievements, in terms of programme implementation and international
recognition, since the first Digital 2 1 Strategy was released in 1 998. It also sets out our roadmap
for the next wave of e-government development. Our focus in the years ahead will be on
understanding our customers, creating value based on what they need, driving utilization through
creation of customer value and rationalizing channel management through a mutual realization
of customer and Government benefits, along a
IG theme.
There are tremendous challenges ahead. I believe that, with strong Government leadership and
aided by the creation of a new Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, we will be
well positioned to coordinate efforts across all bureaux and departments to achieve even greater
success in the years ahead.

Since the promulgation of the first Digital 21
Information Technology Strategy in 1 998 and
the subsequent update in 2001, the Hong Kong
SAR Government has made good progress in
exploiting information technology to better serve
the community. By bringing e-government into

Customer usage and satisfaction
of government information and services and
built up a solid foundation for citizens, businesses
and the Government to further benefit from
e-opportunities. These efforts have brought us
international recognition, reinforcing Hong
Kong's position as a leading digital city.
Government Information and iervices at
a Giance
E-government is bringing citizens ever closer to
the Government. You can now easily access
a vast amount of public information and many
services anytime, anywhere online.
The average monthly number of page views
of all government websites amounts to 1 55
million, an 80% increase over 2002. A
common look and feel website design has
been introduced to further improve
navigation and user-friendliness.
J1 Over 1 200 different public services,
representing 90% of the services that are
amenable to the electronic means of delivery,
are now provided with an e-option.
(see Appendix I)
j All government bills are provided with an
e-payment option.
In 2003, 70% of Internet users had used
e-government services, of which more than
60% rated e-government services as "very
good" or "quite good".1
Submission of trade-related documents
Seven most common trade-related documents
can be submitted to the Government
electronically. Electronic submission of five of
these trade documents to the Government is
mandatory. More than 50 000 traders and
carriers used these electronic services and
more than 18 million transactions were
processed electronically in 2003.

Solid Infrastructure For the Further
Exploitation oF [-government
We have implemented territory- and
Government-wide initiatives to put in place an
infrastructure for citizens, businesses and the
Government to yield benefits from
e-government. To quote a few examples,
%J Through the Electronic Service Delivery (BSD)
Scheme, a robust and popular platform is
available for the Government and the private
sector to provide customer-centric and
integrated online public and private services,
(see Box 2)
•J The smart identity card, together with the
one-year free digital certificate offer and other
value-added applications, is building up a
community-wide information infrastructure
for the Government and the private sector
to introduce innovative and value-added
e-applications. (see Box 3)
• The Electronic Tendering System (ETS) has
facilitated suppliers from all over the world
to do business with the Government online.
In 2003, 3 000 suppliers from over 30
countries have registered to be ETS users.
• The Government Electronic Trading Service
Scheme (GETS) facilitates the trading
community to submit official trade-related
documents electronically to the Government.
Value-added services provided to the trading
community by commercial service providers
create opportunities for the further
development of the local e-commerce service
The HKedCity, which sprung from an
e-government initiative, has now become
a community-wide educational platform.
There are over 1.4 million registered users
on the platform.
The 1823 Citizen's Easy Link has provided an
integrated and one-stop service for handling
enquiries and complaints regarding a wide
range of services, using one single telephone
number. In 2003, over 1 . 1 million calls were
handled. About 90% of cases processed
were resolved within one call. This is a
scalable initiative which is being expanded
to more departments and new areas of work.
0 The promulgation of the Interoperability
Framework has facilitated the seamless flow
of information across individual Government
agencies, as well as more effective
communication between the private sector
and the Government through open
Comprehensive information security policies
have been established to facilitate
the development of reliable and secure
e-government applications.
J With the enactment of the Electronic
Transactions Ordinance and subsequent
amendments, we have a legal environment
for the secure and widespread adoption of
e-government transactions.
The Electronic Service Delivery
The ESD Scheme is our flagship e-government
project which provides interactive and transactional
public services online in a one-stop and customeroriented way. The public can access ESD services
via the Internet, public self-service kiosks at
convenient locations and through mobile devices.
The ESD website was funded and developed by
a private sector operator. In addition to
government services, the operator delivers private
e-commerce services through the same information
infrastructure, pump-priming the development of
e-commerce in Hong Kong.
The ESD website now provides over 180 online
public services from over 50 Government
departments and public agencies. The availability
of e-government and e-commerce services at a
single website facilitates the cross-selling of these
services, provides integrated services targeted at
customers' needs and nurtures an e-culture in the
community to access information and services
online for convenient and quality service.
The Smart
Identity Card
We launched a 4-year programme to replace all
existing ID cards with smart ID cards in August
In addition to supporting the core immigration
functions (as a means of identification), the smart
ID card can be used to store a digital certificate
(personal e-Cert issued by Hongkong Post) for all
e-Cert-based services; as a public library card; for
automated immigration clearance at immigration
control points by the end of 2004; and for driving
licence-related uses in about 2006. We have also
reserved capacity for future possible (government
or commercial) functions. The smart ID card
initiative is creating a territory-wide information
infrastructure for the further development of
e-government and e-commerce in Hong Kong.
In particular, the application for automated
passenger and vehicle clearance at control points
will be important. The initiative will revolutionize
the current method of immigration clearance,
raise overall efficiency and throughput at control
points and improve accuracy and security. It will
also enhance the status of Hong Kong as a worldclass transportation hub.
International Recognition For Our
Hong Kong is widely recognized for its
e-government efforts.
J Hong Kong is regarded as a "mature city" in
terms of e-government leadership.2
*J Hong Kong is ranked second worldwide in
terms of "digital governance".3

The ESD Scheme won the prestigious
Stockholm Challenge Award in 2001.
The Scheme is also a winner of the Asia Best
Practice Award in the category of
e-government in the World Summit Award
2003, in terms of e-content and creativity.
With the successful integration and
management of e-commerce
services, the ESD operator was
selected as the Best E-Commerce
Service Provider by Capital magazine
in December 2003. The ESDIife
brand also gained the Super
Brands Award in 2004.
ti The smart ID card was awarded the Card
Technology Breakthrough Award in the
implementation category by Card Technology
Magazine in 2004, for its use of biometric
technology, multiple application and
coverage of the whole Hong Kong
The Hong Kong Public Libraries' Multimedia
Information System (MMIS) is one of the
world's largest and most complex bilingual
(English and Chinese) digital library services.
Using the interactive features of MMIS, library
users can enjoy a wide variety of audio- and
video-on-demand services as well as access
to a diversity of document imaging material,
from home or libraries. The MMIS is a winner
of the Asia Pacific ICT Award 2002.

e-Government H D N G
Building on our past achievements, we need
to deepen the e-government programme and
focus more sharply on service quality and
effectiveness. In particular, the e-government
programme should seek to bring value both to
customers and to the Government. This will be
achieved through transforming how public
services are delivered, including:
encouraging greater use of electronic forms
of access and service delivery, through
streamlining the business practices underlying
e-services, understanding the Government's
customers and adopting relevant customer
relationship management practices;
*•> breaking institutional silos and enabling
"joined-up" public services across the
Government, and providing services that
bring value to customers; and
as far as possible, engaging private sector
organizations to deliver the services. We
should leverage on private sector's business
ideas and innovation so as to improve services
to customers.
Realizing the above vision in a successful way
requires the Government to put customers at
the centre of public service delivery. We will
pursue a "CARING" e-government programme
to achieve this.
Customer relationship management (CRM)
features have become increasingly popular
among our e-government services. Notably,
our ESD services are designed around customer
needs, as reflected by its user-friendly interface
and navigation path and personalization features
for repeated users. To better meet customer
needs, the ESD operator is also providing
integrated public and commercial services online.
Many departments are conducting customer
surveys and collecting comments from focus
groups to find out what customers want.
We will in future, introduce measures to better
engage our customers through a clear
articulation of our CRM policies and guidelines.
We will step up our CRM efforts to provide
more customer-centric and tailor-made
services to citizens and businesses.
1^ We will introduce personalized features to
more e-government service
users' access to services and information
across different Government departments.
H We will also set out clear CRM policies and
guidelines for all e-government services
invoicing a customer interface, and align
This will stimulate innovative CRM measures
at the inception stage of new projects and

Examples of CRM Features
"Remember Me" function:
The online booking service for sports facilities
and leisure activities on ESD allows users to
create and store their own personal profiles
to facilitate express booking.
The online tax filing service on ESD allows
e-filers to retrieve basic particulars submitted
in a previous year's tax return under ESD to
facilitate e-filing in subsequent years.
Personalization feature:
The online news bulletin allows readers to
receive customized news, according to different
categories, e.g. business and finance, law and
order, health and community, etc.
The personalization function of the Business
Entry Portal allows users to select and rearrange the news and information in the Portal
into customized layout of portlets on their
personalized web pages.
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department
allows registered members of its e-magazine
to customize information and services,
according to their own areas of interest.
J The Business Licence Information Service of
the Trade and Industry Department provides
customized reports on licensing requirements
based on the business type and parameters
The Speedpost service of the Hongkong Post
allows users to trace both outward and inward
mail items online.
J By providing personal and living habit
information in the Men's Health Portal, users
are advised how their lifestyle is affecting their
Customer-oriented offering:
The public libraries provide an email alert
service for several library notices.
The Interactive Tax Enquiry service on ESD
allows taxpayers to check their tax filing and
payment status online.
Service integration and clustering:
J ESD is an initiative that puts customers at the
centre of its service provision. Its services are
organized into different categories according
to customers' needs - leisure, wedding,
household, health, business, etc. The
integration of public and commercial services
provides an even wider service offering,
targeted at customers' needs.
J ESD's wedding portal is a further demonstration
of the benefits of service clustering. Alongside
the e-government service of appointment
booking for giving marriage notice, a
comprehensive set of value-added e-commerce
services, such as "fung shui" advice on
choosing an auspicious wedding date,
e-planner for organizing the wedding,
interactive enquiry service about banquets,
travel information for the honeymoon and a
dedicated online forum for couples to
exchange information and tips, are also
e-Government H D N E K D N E
People are becoming more and more used to
accessing government information and services
electronically. The most popular services include
job search, checking the weather forecast,
searching, renewing and reserving library
material, paying government bills, booking
leisure and sports facilities, etc.
To ensure that the public can take full
advantage of e-services and that Government
departments can reap the benefits of
efficiency gains and cost reduction, we need
to encourage even higher utilization.
*•• To promote the migration of customers
towards e-services, we will identify specific
high-value services for targeted utilization
• To help departments achieve this, we will
introduce differential pricing where
applicable, i.e. to introduce a lower price
for e-services to reflect the lower handling
costs involved; or other service advantages
for e-services,
% We also see the need to rationalize different
channels of service provision - counter,
fax, email, post, phone, online, etc. We
understand what they want and to deliver
services in a manner that best suits them
in a cost-effective way, through a proper
channel management strategy. We will
pilot the implementation of a channel
management strategy in selected
departments and services and devise a
adoption by other departments/services.
Ensuring accessibility is the key to customer
satisfaction and effective service delivery. The
common look and feel website design initiative
announced in March 2003 has been adopted
in over 70 government websites. A survey
conducted in late 2003 indicated positive
feedback from the public. Over 90% of
respondents ranked the initiative positively for
being able to promote brand image and improve
user confidence; provide a user-friendly
experience in navigating the websites; and
organize information more consistently to
facilitate searching.
To further increase the accessibility of
government information and services and to
satisfy customers with different needs, we have
introduced popular and innovative channels for
e-government services by leveraging on one of
the world's highest mobile penetration rates in
Hong Kong. More and more m-government
services are in place, (see Box 5)
In addition, our government websites and
information also cater for people with special
needs, (see Box 6)
We will improve accessibility to our websites
and services by:
* improving our common look and feel
website design to further improve
accessibility and provide a consistent
navigation experience to surfers; and roll
thisbut to all government websites by the
end of 2005;
^ improving the information search function
in government websites and introduce
quick access features for e-services;
%•• strengthening the role of the Government
News Bulletin as a two-way access channel
between the public and the Government
especially, when consulting on public
policies; and
^ making greater use of wireless technology
in our service delivery.
Examples of wireless applications

complaints and conditions in field sites;
Housing Department capturing defects

checking during site inspection; and Civil
Engineering Department performing
geological and geotechnical field mapping,
ground investigation, landslide investigation
and assessment of natural terrain hazards.
J With its Collection and Delivery Management
Information System (CDMS), Hongkong Post
is now using mobile data capturing devices
to record courier collection/delivery results in
the field. They are also receiving service orders
from and reporting service results back to the
central service centres through the public
wireless data communication network. With
these and the application of a Geographic
Information System, Hongkong Post is able
to provide more efficient delivery teams and
vehicle fleet management thereby ensuring
swift and accurate postal collection and delivery
Authentication is often a key consideration in
the provision of e-services. A reliable and robust
authentication mechanism protects security and
privacy and cultivates user confidence. On the
other hand, the choice of authentication means
can easily compromise user-friendliness and
affect usage.
Since January 2000, the Electronic Transactions
Ordinance has provided the legislative framework
for the recognition of Certification Authorities
for the issue of recognized digital certificates,
which presents a highly secure facility to support
transactions that require authentication,
confidentiality, integrity and non-repudiation.
The smart ID card project has further exploited
this technology by providing for the capability
to store a digital certificate for secure
e-transactions. The Inland Revenue Department
Web Accessibility to People with

guidelines with reference to international standards
and input from the industry and disabled groups.
In early 2003, this exercise was completed.
has also introduced a TIN (taxpayer identification
number) for tax filing and other interactive tax
enquiry services. The one-year free offer of an
e-Cert on the smart ID card is building up a
critical mass of digital certificate users, which
in turn will create a strong business case for the
development of more novel, secure and
innovative e-services. The biometric feature, the
card face data and the PIN feature available in
the smart ID card present a new infrastructure
to support the introduction of e-services with
appropriate authentication options.
To cater for the needs of people from different
language groups, government websites have
been made available in Traditional Chinese,
Simplified Chinese and English.
In March 2004, we launched a pilot sound portal
that allows visual-impaired people to listen to
selected government online information through
an Internet connected PC or telephone. The
sound portal supports Putonghua, Cantonese
and English to serve the three mainstream
language groups in our society. We will continue
to drive initiatives to turn Hong Kong into a barrierfree digital city for all.
Building on this, we will develop guidelines
for the adoption of the most appropriate
authentication modes, based on risk levels
commensurate with the security exposure of
individual services and taking into account
their technical functionality and ease of
deployment. We will strike a balance
between user-friendliness, risk level and

Service Transformation
All Government bureaux and departments are
required to explore business process reengineering (BPR) opportunities when
implementing e-government projects. This is
to ensure that the Government takes full
advantage of the e-option to improve operational
efficiency and quality of service delivery and to
* continue to push forward joi ned~up
projects across Government agencies
through securing management
sponsorship and giving funding priority;
^ identify high value areas for cutting across
departmental boundaries and for adopting
a whole-of-government approach; and
* examine and develop a mechanism to
property measure the full benefits of
e-government projects to truly reflect the
real value of e-government. Clear benefit
measurement will help focus bureaux and
departments on opportunities for process

introduction of this requirement, the benefits
have been clear. Joining-up Government
departments to increase operational efficiency
and provide integrated and customer-focused

Traditionally the criminal justice business processes
in the Government have been paper-based and
labour-intensive. Information flows across and
within sections of agencies have been largely

information exchange between 1 1 agencies
throughout the whole criminal justice process from arrest to identification, prosecution, trial,

We are continuously enhancing and updating
our infrastructure to facilitate the "joining up"
of Government departments in processing
information and delivering services.
Efforts have been made over the years to build
up IT infrastructure components that are essential
for the delivery of joined-up e-government
services, such as the Interoperability Framework
(see Box 8), IT security policies and management
framework, a scalable e-transaction platform,
common Chinese language interface, and a
conducive legal environment for the conduct
of e-transactions.
We are putting in place a scalable environment
for the development and operation of some
shared services to facilitate departments in their
implementation of e-services. This will ease
integration of application systems, enable
exchange of information between application
systems and enhance interoperability in the
development of client-centric and serviceoriented projects that cut across the service
boundaries of Government departments.
To facilitate the convenient use of Chinese in
electronic communication and data exchange
by members of the public, we have established
an open and common Chinese language
interface. This includes the adoption of the ISO
(International Organization for Standardization)
10646 standard and publication of the Hong
Kong Supplementary Character Set (HKSCS).
Through our active participation in the
development of the ISO 10646 coding standard
under the aegis of the ISO, we have submitted
the HKSCS to the ISO for inclusion in the ISO
10646 standard, thus putting our commonly
used local characters into the international
coding standard.

A key business objective of our e-government
initiatives is to provide client-centric joined-up
government services to the public, which requires
the Government to be presented as a single
organization with efficient flow of information,
within legal bounds, across individual bureaux
and departments.
To enable two information systems to exchange
information and interact, they have to be
implemented based upon a set of mutually agreed
specifications covering both the business and the
technical aspects. The Interoperability Framework
(IF) helps the interacting parties to work out some
of these specifications more effectively. For
example, it covers the technical standards and
data standards that help define the interface
across different systems, as well as guidelines for
project teams to work out some of the businessoriented specifications.

To lead Hong Kong into the next wave of
e-government, we will create an Office of the
Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO).
This Office will formulate and execute
e-government policy, drive departments to make
greater use of e-government, initiate and take
forward strategically important "joined-up"
projects across departments, vet and provide
funding approval for e-government projects and
provide technical advice on e-government
initiatives. This will bring a stronger business
and technical focus across bureaux and
departments, to take a whole-of-government
approach in driving e-government forward.
We intend to create the Office by merging the
Information Technology Services Department
and the relevant Divisions of the Commerce,
Industry and Technology Bureau in mid 2004.
We have built a solid foundation for Hong Kong
to move further along the e-government road.
To sustain Hong Kong's position as a leading
digital city and to continue with the
Government's efforts to make greater use of IT,
we need to bring more value to customers and
